Esports is best defined as competitive video games. Games that can be considered esports require skill and are usually played in teams, though some are also single player. When on a team, esports athletes fill certain roles much like traditional sports. Teams are usually formed by students or a staff member who has an interest in gaming or simply wants to see students working together using gaming Esports is unique because it is an inclusive, coed sport and can be a way for students who cannot physically participate in traditional sports to be a part of a team and community.
Imagine if students could see world-class athletes standing in their classroom. With The New York Times augmented reality (AR) app, students can take photos with Olympicathletes. They can walk around with them and explore their form, their speed, the height of their jumps, and more.
For the first time, in 2018 the events of the winter Olympic Games will be broadcast and streamed live in all time zones by NBCOlympics.com. The videos will also be available on the NBC Sports app for Android and iOS phones.
